Itaewon is located in the southern part of the shopping district. Due to its proximity to the U.S. military base in Korea, most of the signboards are in English, and the crowds on the street also show a multinational atmosphere. The shopping street takes a meal as an extension to the east and west. Itaewon sells jeans, fur and leather goods at lower prices than in the general market. Customers can customize, design their own style, size can also be freely modified. Bags and wallets made of crocodile skin are Korean specialties. The jeans were decorated with ornate embroidery and beading. The duty-free fur monopoly sells designer fur coats and jackets at a bargain price, but the style and quality are not comparable to those in Hong Kong. Access: Metro Line 6 from Itaewon Station.
Dongdaemun Market, a popular shopping area, is surrounded by eight markets, including Heung In Market, which sells handicrafts and tableware for wholesale and retail, Dongdae Market, which sells kitchen utensils and hiking supplies, Plaza Market, which sells sewing products, and Market, which sells clothing. If you are interested in Korean wave clothing and accessories, it is recommended to focus on the "HELLO APM", "DOOTA" and "Mililai" three major shopping malls (side by side at the gate station exit), where a lot of young clothing designers and products in South Korea are concentrated, and the price is not expensive. Due to the large scale, it is not easy to visit all the places in one breath, but you can visit late at night, ha ha ~ I don't know if Korean people don't rest? I am out to travel so late in the shopping can be understood, but the east gate is really crowded, many to 4-5 in the morning before closing, how to see how can not finish. Access: Take Line 2, 4, 5 and get off at Didaemun Stadium Station; Or subway line 1 or 4, get off at Dongdaemun Station. Dongdaemun is really a lot of things, many people will compare it with Qipu Road, but I think Dongdaemun is a lot cheaper than the South Korean monopoly, but for Chinese tourists, it is not very cheap. At the same time, I think that although the east gate things are not cheap, but the quality is very good.
